The people polled must scan reasonably old (and normy, though it is a manga site not anime site). All those titles started in the 20th century.

Extremely uninteresting results but this could make a neat poll for ANN

Dollars to donuts a lot of fanboys would immediately foam at the mouth if Asuna from SAO doesn't win. Confused

It’s nice seeing Bakabon’s mama and papa on the list. I also think the Matsuno brothers’ parents are a cute couple.

So much Nope!

Bulma & Vegeta I get, ChiChi and "I don't know what kissing is" Goku? Nope!

Tsukasa Domyoji? NOPE! There have got to be rich guys who have never set up a girl to get raped "as a prank." No thank you!

Tsukushi's great though, as far as I remember (I dropped the manga pretty early on).

I'm really curious how an ANN poll for "best couples" would come out. Extra difficulty: limit the choices to shonen manga/anime.

a detective who follows criminals and get in terrible bloody cases is not fit to be a husband specially if he tricks his girlfriend all year long to hide his identity. Laughing

I, for one, am happy to see Yusaku and Kyoko from Maison Ikkoku on the list. I admit that I’m totally biased!

I'm absolutely screaming in horror at Doumyouji being picked. He's the picture of an abusive boyfriend: controlling, jealous, lashes out physically, uses his money and social power to create leverage for himself...

I'm happy to see Kyoko and Godai there, though. Maison Ikkoku is one of the greatest love stories of our era.

Most characters are over the 90s. Not a single character from qeer titles. Compared to this poll, even I feel young.

This list is terrible, Goku and Chichi at #1? They literally got married because of a promise that was made when they were kids, there was no romance in it at all. The rest of them are just from kid shows and they aren't even the main focus of the show.

My top picks for ideal husband material go to Usui Kenta from Karin (Chibi Vampire) and Tanda from Moribito
I guess I go for the nurturing type lol
